by Ryan McGrath

100% transcribed by me. Please inform me of any mistakes, however I don't think 
there are any, if at all.

Lyrics taken from -

            Bm (x24432@1)Dan Treacy's eyes

Part A (1:43 - 2:01)

The chords from "In the middle..." to "...lark" are not actually played in the song, but
for things like acoustic covers I thought it might be helpful to include them, so I did.

	D (xx0232@1)                          Gbm (244222@1)	In the middle of the park

	         G (320003@1)when the underground is dark,

	he's apoet (x02210@1)he's alark (x02210@1)
	          D (xx0232@1)              Gbm (244222@1)             Em (022000@1)He starts thinking about aplace (x02210@1)that no one knows

	D (xx0232@1)                             Gbm (244222@1)	And when the creeks run dry

	         G (320003@1)he stays frozen in time

	strange lights in the sky

	      D (xx0232@1)start blinking

	              Gbm (244222@1)I can see the car outside 

Part E (2:02 - 2:11)

	Em (022000@1)But he's listening, ooh ooh ooh ooh

	Abm (133111@4)he's listening, ooh ooh ooh

	Bm (x24432@1)he's listening, ahh ahh ahh

	         A (x02220@1)and he's making up his mind

Part C (2:12 - 3:09)

however the chords remain the same.
